    Hi David
    My number is 0434089464
    Regards Paul
  2. Chris I'm not really sure, the springs were left over from a HJ I had previously and worked out pretty much perfect on my HQ. If you're refering to the way it sits in the pic in my avatar, that's been photoshopped and it doesn't sit quite that low but I'm happy with how it sits. Also keep in mind sedans have coil springs in the rear and your ute has leaf springs.

    HTH
    David.

    Cheers

  4. I bought the wheels the way they are. They are Wheel Vintiques Pontiac Rallye II's. They're a chromed reproduction of the original Pontiac Rallye II wheels which is what Holden GTS wheels are copied off. Mine came from Rocket Industries.
